president obama justifies the nsa's collection of metadata, referring to millions of individuals' telephone records and internet, airline and credit card data. experts warn that the invasion of privacy is anything but. many players in government characterize the nsa's use of data as more or less benign. but metadata is more powerful than most realize. it can reveal a person's religious and political views, economic standing, sexual preference, personality, mental health, ethnicity. use of addictive substances and more. the ability to characterize groups by these traits might tempt some in government from finding terrorists to targeting groups because of their political leanings. so say three metadata specialists. they're proposed solution? give the citizenry the power to set controls on corporations and companies who collect their data, whether and with whom it can be shared, and whether or not it should be destroyed permanently. people won't have access to their digital data trails in a way similar to an e-mail in- box, so that people can monitor who views their data and who uses it. quest

're going to do some revisions here at the n.s.a., a little course correction, if you will. one thing we're going to do is an independent board of outsiders who will help us determine if we're doing the right thing with the n.s.a. and protect civil liberties and certainly protect against abuses. we find out today who will be actually picking that board, shepherding it and in the words of the administration, establishing the group. that will be the outsider known as james clapper, the head of the n.s.a. i think they're trying to make us l.o.l. ok? i think this is preposterous. lindsey, do you believe that the head of the n.s.a. might pick an independent board that would then say that he's doing everything wrong? >> i have a hard time believing that, and i mean, i have a hard time toughing this guy at all, since when he was asked directly if the n.s.a. was collecting data on american citizens, he answered unequivocally no only a find out a couple months later that yeah, they're collecting a lot of data. >> he says now he'll pick an independent board. i'm glad you pointed that out. we got t

about the nsa or stop and frisk? >> caller: both. >> stephanie: both. well, so you don't think there should be any balance between security and privacy. >> caller: no, i'm saying with surveillance, the nsa, everybody is in an uproar about it. if you did nothing wrong, what are you worried about? i don't send texts because i don't know how to. >> stephanie: you are safe because you are a [ inaudible ]. >> stephanie: you didn't learn how to send texts until two years ago. >> stephanie: well, that was because i had to have sex, but that was a different story. bob in l.a. hi, bob. >> caller: they -- come on, brain -- what made us so afraid was that new york plains getting whacked to the buildings. from that we got stop and frisk. here in l.a. the lapd are recording your movements of your car through the city, put it into a database, they can pull it up any time they want to see where your car was. they shoot pictures of it in your driveway and people around it. >> stephanie: yeah, and one of the ways they are talking about being able to adjust stop and frisk is cops all have camera
's president putin over tensions becausest n.s.a. leaker edward snowden. >> john: yes, that is clearly the only reason. it's-- it's always a good idea to pad out with what you really want to say with self-righteous human rights stuff like, "kimberly, we need a break. i don't like your stance on chine and tibetan monks and your boobs are weirding me out." if we want snowden back all we need to do is convince vladimir putin that snowden is gay. that away wayhe'llob a plane into u.s. custody faster than a definitely not homoerotic team of elastic clad men. that quick. actually, russia is not only global leadership story we're dealing with tonight which brins us to our new segment... indeed. now, we've already dealt with russia, so let's see where our magical dploab will take us next egypt! egypt. i just lift egypt. i'm not-- i'm not used to guns. ( laughter ) as the situation in egypt continues to devolve, the u.s. like a polar bear on a hastily melting glackier is trying to act like everything's still cool.

the nsa and that briefing did not go so well truthwise. >> does the nsa collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of americans? >> no, sir. >> it does not? >> not wittingly. >> not true. but it wasn't until after it was made clear his answer it was not true that clapper offered this answer to why he gave false testimony to congress. >> i responded in what i thought was the least untruthful manner by saying no. >> see how that works for you next time you take an oath to tell the truth. or take a page from our friend mr. costanza. >> jerry, just remember it's not a lie if you believe it. >> now, when asked how the president can justify having an independent review by outside expert being run by the guy running the spy program, it was explained they have to have appropriate clearances and accesses and says clapper will not get in the middle of their work. of course not. at least not wittingly. >> also in national news, you're walking on the street, not jay walking, not littering but a police officer spots you and thinks something is suspicious. the next thing you
warming. the economy. and jobs. and by the way, nsa and spying and intelligence. and they're all, in a way, they're all also related. they're all part of the same agenda of how we move forward in a way that's best for the country. i don't think we can be -- i'm not saying you are. >> no, no. the interesting thing is, of course, that's what this economic thing is about. you had a lot of -- on the face of it, disparate issues tied up. you had immigration, healthcare and job security and student loans all kind together in this. >> bill: so on the nsa, the president's message, the way i read it friday, sitting there was this program is -- the nsa, they're doing a good job. they're doing a necessary job. they're not violating anybody's constitutional rights. it is not being abused in any way. you just don't understand it. and if you understood it better and if we explained it better, then everything would be hunky-dory. right? he didn't say he was going to change it in any way which i expected from the buzz ahead of time. that we were going to see some major changes. >> you know someone who's b
to "viewpoint." edward snowden's leaked revelation about the nsa set off a firestorm of outrage from americans from both the right and the left. president obama tried to douse the flames at his press conference on friday. >> obama: we can and must be more transparent. so i've directed the intelligence community to make public as much information about these programs as possible. we've already declassified unprecedented information about the nsa. but we can go further. >> john: the president said he'll work with congress to reform section 215 of the patriot act which deals with the collection of phone records. he'll also reform oversight of the foreign intelligence surveillance court and make the rationale for the collections public. but is he setting himself up for anotheriation where not much gets done and no one's happy? let's ask the smartest guy in the room, michael tomasky in d.c., a special columnist for "newsweek" and the "daily beast" and has been a treasured guest on our show. welcome back to "viewpoint." >> second smartest guy in the room. >> john: thank you and god bless your low st
on the nsa debate right now which is really interesting given that in 2008, the primary was lost in part because of the left's upset with her vote for the iraq war. the nsa is an issue liberals are very unhappy about and the base of her party is unhappy about. i'm surprised she's getting out there ahead of things. >> and very forward looking. she could go in and reminisce about being first lady or talk about her tenure as the secretary of state. governor, the $64,000 question. here it is. how much are these movements across the country by the gop precipitated by census data pertaining to what's to come in this country in 2050 when whites become a minority as a group of the population? >> i think a lot of it's being driven by that. by the way, you're showing your age. no one under 35 knows what the $64,000 question was. but you're absolutely right. it's being driven by that, and it is truly despicable. i don't care where you are, and by the way, it's not just presidential elections. they're aiming at in north carolina. kay hagan is running for re-election as senator in 2014. it's going to
it comes to an essay monitoring -- nsa monitoring. john kerry's preemptive editorial attempted to ease tensions about u.s. spy tactics. >> we have been open and honest and we are going to keep sharing as much as we can. defended surveillance techniques as legal and downplayed talk about divisions between the u.s. and its closest allies in the region. >> it goes beyond a top line. it is rooted in law. >> i want to make clear that america is not interested in spying on ordinary people. >> president obama began his vacation and the white house released this memo to examine how information is collected and how to restore public trust in the program. >> it is not enough for me as president to have confidence in these programs. the american people need to have confidence in them as well. >> a review group will share their findings and a full report is due out by the end of the year. another key topic will be on the agenda tomorrow. >> john kerry says the recent controversy over israeli settlements should not throw talks off track. israel approved about 1000 new settlements that the u.s. beli
these new speeches lines up or goes against what president obama has done whether on the nsa, voting rights. let many not forget when it comes to the voting rights issue it seems controversial. but 70% of people support some kind of voter i.d. law in their state. we'll see where she goes when it comes to pandering to independents or she'll try to lock down that base before going into the general election. >> she talks about running potentially as a woman. something she ignored or pushed to the back of the agenda and perhaps she feels to run in some way if she decides to as the first woman president potentially, that that was something that might have been a good arrow in her quiver that she might have neglected. >> in the 2012 election the war on women theme worked to gain votes. gallup polls show it worked for democrats. democrats want a woman to be president. they can say historically they elected the first woman to the office. she'll probably use that to her advantage. but she is taking on other issues that aren't necessarily women's issues as well. it will be interesting to see how she
overreaction, the nsa program. >> well, i guess we will have to take a break here. we are running out of time. i was going to make a point. one more thing, it is up next. ♪ if you've got it, you know how hard it can be to breathe and man, you know how that feels. copd includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. spiriva is a once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that helps open my obstructed airways for a full 24 hours. you know, spiriva helps me breathe easier. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. does breathing with copd weigh you dow
insulted every single american by granting political asylum to nsa leaker edward snowden. wants snowden stand trial for disseminating information. ignored request to send snowden back for trial. >> i don't have a bad personal relationship with putin when we have conversations, they are candid, they are blunt, oftentimes they are constructive. i know the press likes to focus on body language and got that kind of slouch, looking like the bored kid in the back of the classroom. >> well, some conservatives did not like the president's statement. >> the president comparing him to a kid in the back of the classroom i think is very indicative of the president's lack of appreciate of who vladimir putin is. >> the nicest thing he said about putin was hey, we don't have a bad relationship. yet, he called him the kid who slumps in the back of the room in a classroom. i mean, is that what you say to a pier? is that what you say to somebody you respect? >> bill: interesting question. but why would anybody respect vladimir putin? is he a human rights violater who has spit in the eye of america. why w
, the president's other advisory board, the nsa's advisory board, so the question is what will be the mission? i assume it will be a board comprised of tech-heavy participants. they may provide useful input, one of the things i've been urging for some times, they may tain their own data. having some tech people on the board to say that's technological -- we can do that, we should move in that direction. that could be useful if that's their mission, but i think these boards will be tripping over each other if they're not defined in what their scope will be. >> is more congressional oversight needed? >> certainly congress will have to be heavily involved to make sure this board is populated with the right people, it actually does sxern an important function, but the things -- seven's the creation of an adver sear process. that's probably the most significant of all the presidential proposals, so the fisa court has that benefit. in these key cases, noted garden variety of individual warrants, but when they are interpretations of section 215, like that interpretation that led to the metadata program
after a one day visit to columbia. like he did, kerry will attempt to ease concerns act nsa surveillance programs. kerry will also discuss education, energy, and the billions of dollars in trade between the u.s. and brazil. >> president obama formerly orders the director of national intelligence to set up a outside review board to analyze the government's surveillance techniques. now the president also ordered him to have the board report its findings no later than december 15th. president announced the boards creation at a knew conference last week. >> it is 6:37, and 75 degrees outside. still ahead here, we have incredible video of a gas line exploding. >> also, ahead, solving the mystery after a priest seemed to come from nowhere to pray at a missouri crash scene, and then just hi. in frederiksberg virginia. >> we have gather as few of our friends to say. >> "good morning washington." >> yeah! good morning to you as well. we here, we want to honor some of the young heros in our area. >> we are giving away $1,000 grants to children who are passionate about improving their communities.

you override the constitution? >> the nsa program. successful. >> it is not. it is very much different. there's probable cause. >> what is the probable cause? >> someone acting suspicious. >> one of the suspects was crawling out of a window of a dilapidated home. another was a wanted poster. he looked exactly like the one on wanted poster. these are the ones the judge said were constitutional. no, this judge is wrong on this, makes me want to leave new york. so ridiculous. >>> coming up, willie robertson makes a guest appearance on "the five." stick around. the postal service is critical to our economy. delivering mail, medicine and packages, yet they're closing thousands of offices, slashing service and want to layoff over 100,000 workers. the postal service is recording financial losses, but not for reasons you might think. the problem? a burden no other agency or company bears. a 2006 law that drains $5 billion a year from post office revenue while the postal service is forced to overpay billions more into federal accounts. congress created this problem, and congress can fix it. you
that make the nsa surveillance program worth it? >> the thing is, i don't think there's been any evidence that anything intercepted from the program of spying or collecting american data has ever uniquely been used to stop any terrorism. you know, they had a discussion with senator leahy and the committee and they talked about 50 plots and then it got down to 15 and 4 and 1. >> how many had been explicitly stopped. >> i'm not against tapping phones of people you suspect to be terrorists. all i'm for is calling a judge first. i'm not for looking at all american's records, but if an american is involved, call a judge. it's not that hard to get a twarnt. we fought a revolution over separating the powers, not letting police get warrants, you have to call a judge. >> what the united states did in response is close the embassies and there's been this unprecedented spate of drone attacks that happened in the last week, ten days. a lot of people have been killed and only a couple of terrorists. and you can read into that what you will what that might do to the united states. you've said before me

at the fisa debate. a lot of people looked at other stories we wrote about fisa, and about nsa spying and that sort of thing. it put a human face, i think, on the otherwise inpenetrable government bureaucracy system going on. nobody ever really stands exactly -- don't understand what is going on when nsa decides to tap someone's phone. and it was a nice way to sort of show that to people. >> i agree with john when he mentioned that people seem to be more plugged in to politics now than they have ever been. there are part of the explosion of media outlet on capitol hill covering politics since 2006, 2007.ort what you see is that people are only going places that reenforce their already-held opinions. so it's important -- we all -- all of our organizations do really well, is to provide an independent viewpoint or independent look at what is going on in in washington that is simplified enough for the common person, the nonpolitical person to understand but nuanced enough that, you know, you're not boiling it down to something where they're not getting anything out of it. like, i was talk
